International ICE train tickets (to or from Germany, Austria or Switzerland) will now be issued from the Belgian train station of your choice. This means that your ticket price remains the same, regardless of whether you are travelling to/from Brussels, Liège, Antwerp, Ghent, etc.
Please note: the ICE departure/arrival train stations remain the same (Brussels (Midi/Zuid and Nord/Noord) and Liège-Guillemins). This means that you still need to change onto a Belgian domestic train for your connecting journey in Belgium. When booking your ticket, please specify your departure/arrival station in Belgium so that your ticket continues to be valid in Belgium.
